Hi campers,
I am a 16 year old boy ,from the U.K, called Billy. I just left school last July and I really needed something to do come September. Unfortunately due to an ongoing health condition, CFS, which I developed last November. I cannot attend a regular college or sixth form as it is to stressful for my body to cope with and I end up becoming really ill. Then last week when I was looking for ways I could teach myself to code, I found FreeCodeCamp. I was almost immediately glued to the site, each day wishing to further extend my knowledge and learn more and more about how coding works. So I have only completed the “Html and CSS” and the “Responsive design with bootstrap” courses, but I have already learnt so much. In a world where almost everything now is powered by technology we need more programmers so I am setting out to finish all of the courses on this site so I can claim my certificate at the end as well as it being education that I can do from home so I do not have to worry about the stressful environment of a college, therefore my health condition will not deteriorate and will hopefully become better with time.

Thanks for all the help fellow campers,
Kind regards Billy Godding.

FCC is a great organization and I think you’ll find that not only does it have great content and instructional format, it’s also has a vibrant and collaborative community. As @BenGitter noted don’t hesitate to ask for help and to give help. Good luck on your journey!
